CONROE, TEXAS- A woman pleaded guilty to murdering a mom and kidnapping her baby to avoid a possible death sentence.

Verna McClain made the plea in return for life without parole.

She shot 28-year-old Kala Golden-Schuchardt last year outside a pediatric clinic in a suburb of Houston and snatched her 3-day-old son, Keegan.

He was later found safe with McClain's sister who told authorities McClain intended to adopt the boy.

Police and McClain's relatives said she had a miscarriage and was desperate to find a baby to pass off as her own.
